Not sure if this is the right part of the forum to post this , if not then let me know and I'll move it .
I haven't been to a wedding for quite a few years so this weekends one was the first since I’ve been into my photography , so I can only describe my emotion as gob smacked when the vicar stated that because there was a pro photographer there no one would be aloud to take any photos or video at all .
Now I certainly don't have any problem with the family spending good money on a pro photographer and asking people to keep out of the way when they are doing their job , but to ban all of the family and friends from taking their own shots is I think totally over the top . I must point out that I don't know where these instructions came from ( family , church or photographer ) but they were read out by the vicar before the bride arrived .
The only other time that I have come across anything like this before is when I was at Lands End and I was told that I could not take a photo of my partner beside the sign post and that we would have to buy a photo or take our own from out side the fence .
Is this the norm now or do you think that this was an isolated incident .
